Dismiss Notice

Hi Guest. I just wanted to let you know that there will be some service disruptions here over the next few days. We're moving to a new server and then the latest version of xenforo is going to be installed. ~ cheryl

It has come to this...

    Let’s face it.... the interest they are making off of the retros is the only reason we still are in business right now.... if the checks would have been mailed out 6 months ago the company would already have gone belly up!!!

    But then the growth would look less than what it actually was. Just kicking the can down the road.

    Uber profits are low, the decentralized network of personal vehicle drivers is not worth very much when they have to compete with other emerging decentralized personal vehicle services, as more industries try to exploit this model, the more each industry will hemorrhage their stock values.

    I would tell people to make sure they invest in something unique, trademarked, local, something that cannot be reproduced easily as that kind of service will have long-term value.

    Most of this is coming now because this is the last week of 1st quarter. Next week April 1st is the start of 2nd quarter. They just want to kick the expenses to the start of 2nd quarter.

    Not that I agree with it, just saying. It's all stupid.

    So the 2nd quarter starts in a hole.

    End of 2nd quarter expect the same stupidity to kick the can to the 3rd quarter.

    Ups is also trying to recoup from retro checks, raises and new hires getting $15 an hour.

    That's what they did last year Q4, and look what happened. Becoming the norm, sadly.
     
  15. If this was a leap year, they would have made their numbers.....

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    That’s the problem with cutting expenses the last few days of a quarter it just increases expenses the next quarter so you have to cut again. Idiots

    Drivers are now being encouraged to bring empty milk jugs and lengths of garden hose from home so that they can scavenge for fuel out on route.

    The money we save on fuel tomorrow can be spent on ink cartridges to print more reports with.
